Arizona

Trail Information

The wooden steamer Arizona was built in Cleveland in 1868.  She was a wooden propeller barge with a 765 ton displacement, a length of 201 feet and beam of 32 1/2 feet.

Built in 1898, the Arizona caught fire December 4, 1922 at Cape Vincent and without adequate water hose protection, was lost.  She was towed 1.5 miles upstream where her sea cocks were opened and she sank into 25' of water.  Later the ship remains were dynamited to prevent it from being a navigational hazard.
